... Family Getaway ...


This last week we took the boys out of school (with the both schools knowledge) and headed an hour up the road to Centre Parcs Elveden forest.

We were very kindly gifted the break as a wedding present and couldn't wait to book it.
Ever since the wedding we have been counting down to this week and I'm now a little sad its over.


Along with us both sets of grandparents came.
My parents stayed in the same house as us and Jon's parents got a little cabin just for themselves.

We all really enjoyed the time away, it was nice to relax and see all the boys enjoying themselves and having both sets of grandparents to have fun with.

We went swimming every day and the boys also had some sort of fun activity to go along to on most of the days we were there such as Archery, a 3 hour pirate party, quad biking and so on.
With the boys all sorted for fun we also booked a spa treatment for myself, my mum and Jon's mum which was very need and very much enjoyed!

We had a few meals out but the best ones were where we cooked at home and everyone was there.

Being in the forest was great and has made me want to go and build a cabin in the middle of a forest and never be seen again!
We loved seeing all the different woodland wildlife and couldn't help but fall in love with the very friendly Muntjacs who came daily for their apples!

I won't ramble on too much so here are some snaps from the week...

On our first morning we met this little chap.

and he was VERY friendly.

I'm pretty excited that I've been invited along to take part in the semi finals over in Orpington this coming Friday.

Review || Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture

So its my cousins wedding this weekend and I'm having to make my legs suitable for public viewing! Usually my legs are hidden and the only leg skin that see the light of day are the bits that peak out behind the holes in my jeans.

I don't tend to get my legs out but when I do, I do like them to look good!
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to shaving my legs, and I will let them grow rather wildly if I have no reason to show them off! Obviously something Jon loves hates with a passion!
I was very kindly sent Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture , to try! The fact its an all in one really appealed to me, because.... I am..... a lazy shaver!

Potty Training Academy // Sticker Chart.

Ru has taken to potty training like a pro! He's had hardly any accidents and is no longer using nappies during the day.

I started him off in Bambino Mio training pants but after a day of a couple accidents he started taking himself to the toilet without any prompt from me.

I introduced him to his Potty Training Academy sticker chart on day one and he was very keen to fill it up, so even when he didn't need the loo, he would try and squeeze something out just to get a sticker.

We used both a toddler loo seat and the carry me potty, but he prefers to do his wee's just like his brothers...standing up. He sings putting out the fiiiire when he's weeing (god knows where he got that from! lol.) 

The first real test was sending him to nursery and seeing if he returned with a bag full of wet pants. I made sure the washing machine was free for his return but when he came home wearing the same outfit that he went in in was such a win.

The sticker chart was a great help with gett…
